NAS Oceana Arrival

NAS Oceana and Dam Neck Annex are within the city limits of Virginia Beach, one of the most famous vacation destinations on the East Coast, noted for its 6 miles of sandy beach along a resort boardwalk visited by millions of tourists each year.

Yet, within sight are nearly 3.2 miles of pristine coastal beaches and sand dunes on some of the most beautiful and unpopulated beachfront property in Virginia — all part of Dam Neck Annex, available to military members, families, students and DOD employees stationed here.

Virginia Beach is just south of the entrance to Chesapeake Bay and is bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean. Both NAS Oceana and Dam Neck Annex lie just south of its major highway, Interstate 264, which ends at the Atlantic Ocean.

If driving to NAS Oceana, follow Interstate 264 east to Exit 21A at First Colonial Road. Turn right on First Colonial Road, which becomes Oceana Boulevard. Follow Oceana Boulevard until you reach NAS Oceana. Turn right on Tomcat Boulevard to the main gate. Dam Neck Annex is about 3.5 miles further. Turn right off Oceana Boulevard onto General Booth Boulevard and then left at Dam Neck Road.

If driving directly to Dam Neck Annex, you can follow Interstate 264 east to Exit 19C at London Bridge Road. Turn right on London Bridge Road. Turn left at Dam Neck Road, which ends at Dam Neck Annex main gate.

If flying, Norfolk International Airport is the closest destination — about 20 miles from NAS Oceana. The airport has a USO lounge on the second level of the arrivals terminal, which provides food services, computers, a lounge, library, movies and information. If you are an incoming student, the staff can also contact your schoolhouse to determine if bus transportation is available. Airport limousine service is also available to the base. Discount rates are available for two or more passengers going to the same location.
